NASW-NYS Chapter Elections

NASW-NYS Chapter Elections


The Chapter’s Committee on Nominations & Leadership Identification (CNLI) invites you to review the current leadership opportunities available and consider a role that fits your skills and interests as a way of giving back to your profession and enhancing your own leadership skills. Holding a leadership position offers you an influential role at the state and/or local level to guide our priorities for the organization.

You may nominate yourself, a friend, or colleague who is also a member of NASW-NYS. Members of our CNLI committee, including the CNLI Chair and NASW-NYS staff liaison, are all available to discuss the various opportunities with you and help you decide which role best suits you. Experienced leaders are welcome and new candidates are also encouraged to nominate. For those who are elected, the Chapter will provide orientation to your new role, information about current chapter initiatives, as well as opportunities for leadership development.

Nomination period is now closed. 

Please submit any questions or concerns about the Chapter Elections to Romel Wilson, LMSW, Member Relations Specialist at
